Purslane and Four Other Things to Look for in the Farmers' Markets This Weekend
2. Jerusalem Artichokes (a/k/a Sunchokes) -- Scrub these with a brush before you use them, and leave the skin on. Sliced very thin they can be used raw in salads, or roasted whole with olive oil, garlic, and sea salt, along with some baby red potatoes cut in half, if you wish.
4. Tri-Star Strawberries -- Just arrived in the markets, and extravagantly priced at $6 per quart. Price will hopefully come down, but till then eat them slightly chilled one at a time, or with strained Greek yogurt.
